Art Journal Emporium: Week in Review #2 January 17 2015, 1 Comment

The Art Journal Emporium is about halfway through the first month of the year with no indications of slowing down any time soon.  Explorers in the Emporium found a new download this week inspired by the Art Journal Emporium book club and they continued to work other inspiring projects.

Art Journal Emporium Book Club

We’re working our way through The Confident Creative and having a great time doing it.

I love this layout by Dianne! The colors are gorgeous and the message is just what we all need to hear from time to time.

This page by Balinda really made me smile and I loved the quote!

The Daily Art Dose

With a thought of just give yourself ten minutes, everyday, to create something, The Daily Art Dose was born. Here’s a look at what we’ve been doing.

I love how Crystal put our inspiration word ‘sneak” so colorfully and so stealthily into the image here. We should all let art sneak into our brains!

Marilyn C. is rocking these zentangles everyday. Here is her interpretation of sidewalk.

Artist Trading Cards: Words to Live By Project

ATCs are great fun whether you do them digitally or as mixed media. I think we have a little of both going on in this artspiration zone.

Anne Lou created this colorful ATC digitally. It says, “I breathe ART” and we agree!

These two ATCs made by Kris T. are fantastic with bursts of warm colors.

Word of the Year

The artists in the Art Journal Emporium are still keeping *focused* on our words for the year. This page by Penny shows just how focused she is.

If you are a member of the Emporium and want to make sure you don’t miss anything, please check back regularly and check the ‘New Deliveries Log.’ There are new things popping up all the time.

If you want to see more of what we’ve been doing in the Art Journal Emporium you can search for our shared pieces on social media with the tags: #artjournalemporium and #thedailyartdose. Better yet, come join the Art Journal Emporium and get in on the fun.

I intended to write and post this yesterday, but you know how sometimes the day just gets away from you? That was my day yesterday. Sorry, art explorers!
